Seafood Tagliatelle

Feeling in a somewhat fishy mood following the crayfish dish I decided to go the whole hog and knock up seafood tagliatelle. Anyone who knows me will tell you that fish and I don’t usually share the same space. I don’t know why, I just don’t like the taste of fish, perhaps it’s because I’m a Pisces and it’s almost cannibalism, well it would be if you believed in that nonsense. Anyyyy-wayyyy, the dish.

It’s pretty basic recipe but brings out the flavour of the seafood, which wasn't too fishy, very well and the best thing is, its really simple to make. The seafood itself was a supermarket medley of Prawns, mussels and squid

Serves 4

1 Shallot Finely Chopped
2 Cloves of Garlic finely Chopped
2 Packets of Sainsburys seafood mix
2 Handfuls of soya beans or peas or skinned broad beans
Good glug of dry white wine (about 150ml)
Couple of handful of flat leaf parsley roughly chopped
Lemon Juice
Enough Tagliatelle for four people

Put a large pan of water on to boil

In a large frying pan heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil then gently fry the shallot and garlic.

Add the seafood and beans then sauté for a couple of mins

Pour in the wine bring to boil and simmer for until the sauce thickens
Seasoning to taste as you go

The important bit here is timing your seafood with your pasta, if the pasta isn’t cooked yet, turn off the heat on the sauce. When the pasta is cooked add a little pasta water to the sauce, drain the pasta and add to the pan with the sauce and stir through until all the pasta is coasted

Chuck in your parsley and stir through, serve in pasts bowls add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and its ready.

Serve with lemon wedges for extra zing
